Full of Grace

  1. That no one was hurt in a car accident in which Peachie was a passenger.  The car was totaled.  Everyone sufficiently shook up.  Everyone lived to tell the tale.  I can’t get any more grateful than this.


  1. Friends with trucks.  I used to own a truck but found it very impractical once we had kids.  We do have a utility trailer that handles most of our big load needs but every once in a while you just need a flatbed truck for things like wall board.   So grateful for friends who are graciously willing to lend a hand.  And a truck.


  1. Pink joint compound.  Isn't this amazing?  It goes on bubble gum pink and then fades to white when its dry.   This makes me inexplicably happy.




  1. Cabin socks.  My preferred state is barefoot, but when your house is ankle deep in construction dust, and its cold from keeping the windows open to vent, cabin socks are the next best thing.  

  1. Veterans.  I dislike war, but I am very grateful that there are people who are willing to put their very lives between me and it.  My heartfelt gratitude to all those who serve and have served.

  1. My kids being in the midst of some horrific accident or incident is . . well, whew. I'm glad all involved are unscathed.

    1. It is a parent's worst nightmare. And a parent's greatest thrill when their child calls to say "you were right mom." (wearing her seat belt belt, even in the back seat.)

  2. I too am thankful for our veterans and especially that they are once again receiving the honor and gratitude they deserve, as opposed to our Vietnam Vets.

    Much gratitude indeed for unharmed children. Getting that phone call must have been heart stopping.

    I am a big, big fan of cabin socks!

    1. What happened to our Vietnam veterans is one of the great chapters of shame of this country, I think. I'm glad we learned something from it.
